Out of nowhere… the next project.

Interweave is offering a download of Knit Accessories 2009 for 10 cents until August 29. Never one to pass up a bargain, I jumped on that bad boy immediately. Paging through it just now, I came upon this little lace shawlette/scarfy thing.


Given that I am now a lace knitter, this one appealed to me — small, quite open so it wouldn't take much yarn nor take forever to knit. Idly I perused the pattern. Hmm, Halcyon Yarn Silk Gemstone 2/5. I wonder is that is laceweight or what, I thought. 

Ravelry to the rescue.


Guess what I have in my stash, just waiting for the right project?


Just in case you are not familiar with that yarn, here are the deets.



I don't necessarily believe in kismet or karma, but this just seems… foreordained.

This yarn has always been intended for a lacy scarf. I had been considering Amy Singer's Montego Bay. And that would have been a lovely scarf, too. But this is better. We are leaving tomorrow for ten days on the North Shore, and a lace knitting project requires some uninterrupted knitting time at the beginning. Perfect.
